Co będziecie robić

First of all we´ll visit my place of birth in Old Havana and its surroundings where coexist history and modernity. We will make a walk over some key places on this city. It will be a great opportunity to contrast the Cuba's current changes with the Cubans' every day life. Then will arrive at the Morro Castle Fortress across the bay and we will take a time to enjoy great views of the old and modern Havana and to watch our unparalleled tropical twilight. Then we will explore the fortress, its bastions, moats, gates and cannons that have been witnesses of many historical events such as the occupation of Havana by the English in 1762. We will visit CheGuevara' s office in the fortress which it is a museum with many Guevara's objects. Then we will go to a nice private restaurant near the sea, a new Cuban phenomenon in response to calls from Cubans for the right to earn money through private enterprise, and we will talk about this topic and other Cuba's changes. Then we will enjoy a welcome cocktail while we wait to enjoy the great show: The 9 o' clock Cannon Shot (9 p.m).A beautiful tradition that dates from eighteenth century and announced the opening and the closing of the city walls. If you wish to book a date that is not added or change the timetable, please contact me and we can work it out.

I studied English at the University of Havana. Then I took postgraduate studies in Preservation and Management of Culture Patrimony in order to work as a tour guide at Morro-Cabaña Historical-Military Park, one of Cuba´s most important historical sites, declared World Heritage Site and where it is celebrated the famous 9 O´clock Cannon Shot. I have worked as an English language teacher, translator of historic documents and tour guide for different state institutions during 17 years. I love Havana and its inhabitants, including their history, culture, idiosyncrasies and culinary traditions.

La verdadera experiencia no fue el Cañonazo sino conocerlo y compartir con él. Es una persona sumamente culta y encantadora. Mostró un excepcional conocimiento y dominio no solo de la historia interna de Cuba sino también desde un punto de vista internacional. Pocas veces uno tiene el privilegio de conversar y elevar el nivel de pensamiento con alguien de su nivel. Un apasionado de lo que hace y amante de la historia de su país. Por otro lado, no tuvo inconveniente alguno en hacer todos los ajustes que tuviesen que hacerse para que pudieramos disfrutar por completo de esta experiencia; toda vez que acudiriamos tarde en lo que culminabamos otra experiencia. La recomendación del restaurante y comida fue igualmente excepcional. No comimos mejor en otro lado durante el tiempo que duró nuestra visita. En conclusión, fuí buscando conocer algo de la historia de Cuba narrada desde el punto de vista de un local y terminé ganando un amigo...

I was about 20-30 minutes late for this experience as I had to wait 3 hours at the airport to collect my checked luggage, fyi there is a reason a lot of Cubans plastic wrap and or zip tie their luggage as opposed to simply using a TSA approved lock. Rafael was gracious enough to meet me in Vedado at my lodgings based on my request lodged in advance due to my lack of knowledge about getting around as this was my first time in Cuba. Rafael arranged a Russian taxi to carry my mom and I to Old Havana where we did a brief tour of the buildings surrounding Parque Central before heading to La Cabana via Yellow Cab. Rafael would have selected El Canonazo which is in the direct vicinity of La Cabana for us to have dinner. The portion sizes were large and the food was pretty decent however as I later learnt by Cuban standards the prices were a bit on the high side and as such the restaurant was solely filled with tourists. Dinner for my mother and myself came up to CUC 44. On tripadvisor the restaurant was listed as a rating of 4/5 and being in the medium price range category. Reviews left on trip advisor in both October and November 2019 on trip advisor complained about the price which I would have to concur with. I would have subsequently had dinner/drinks at a better rated restaurant as per trip advisor i.e. Habana Blues in Vedado 4.5/5 also medium priced category in Vedado and left with breakfast for the next morning for a total cost for my mother and myself for 20 CUC. At the La Cabana fortress we paid 8CUC each to enter, which was a pre- disclosed cost, with Rafael would have selected an excellent point for us to stand to view the ceremony without getting caught up in the press of the crowd on the fortress wall. Whilst shopping for souvenirs at the fortress Rafael would have also facilitated a reduction of 5 CUC for me on a carved bone cane which would have initially have costed 35 CUC. Rafael then arranged a Russian taxi to carry us home where he accompanied us to our doorstep.

Fué la mejor idea tomar esta experiencia con un experto en el tema, nos platicó muchísimo, y nos enseñó muchas cosas. Nos llevó a un paladar hermoso con música en vivo y excelente precio. Nos llevó por lugares que solamente un local conoce, subimos a un autobus, caminamos por calles solitaria, con cuidaba mucho y hasta nos colocó en la mejor ubicación para poder disfrutar de la ceremonia del cañonazo.

My girlfriend and I met Rafael at Central Park and started our experience there. This was my thirteenth trip to Cuba, my girlfriends first. His experience takes you through several of the squares, then onto the fort where there are shops, restaurants and things to do before the 9pm cannon shot.

Rafael was very knowledgeable about all things Cuban and even Russian. He set us up with a great convertible classic car to take us to the Fortress. His English was excellent. He felt like a close friend. He secured a very good viewing point for the ceremony. Afterwards, when we were dropped off at Parque Central, we decided to hit the rooftop bar at Hotel Inglaterra. Once inside, we bumped into Rafael who was retrieving his umbrella left there earlier. He joined us on the rooftop and secured a nice table for us. Such a wonderful evening.
